She found out a little over a week ago. The first two days were hard, but since then she hasn’t talked about it and wants to continue living life as normal until her second opinion. We are really close I mean we do everything together. So we have been living life as normal laughing, hiking watching bachelor in paradise. It’s nice to forget about it and enjoy life with her. But when we aren’t together or talking it all comes back. It’s so hard and I know it’s a million times harder for her. I pray the second opinion is more optimistic.

I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I can relate – I was disagnosed with a Grade 3 Glioma last March at 29 years old. (Originally, they told me I had GBM but after further testing they found it to be a high-grade anaplastic astrocytoma).
You are 100% right on not googling or looking at statistics. That was one of the first things my oncologist told me – not to look at the stats for brain cancer because stats encompass everyone – including people who refuse treatment.
Brain cancer is such an awful disease and GBM is a beast. I pray that all of the promising new research in CAR T-Cell Therapy advances ASAP so that your husband can be treated. Stay strong and keep enjoying your family!!
